President Obama is scheduled to address the nation tonight to reveal his program to help create jobs. But I guarantee that he will not say anything about the jobs program for illegal aliens that he already has in place.
Earlier this year, Labor Secretary Hilda Solis signed an agreement with six Latin American countries to help protect the rights of migrant workers in the US. The agreement included the education and protection of illegal immigrants from Mexico and other Central American countries.
National Labor Rights Week was August 29 to September 5. The US Labor Department, along with several other federal agencies took part in workshops held by the Mexican Consulate in 50 US cities. At these workshops, the Labor Department counseled illegal aliens on their rights and how to obtain an Individual Taxpayer Identification Number (ITIN) from the IRS which will allow them to work in the US. This was all done under the agreement that Solis had signed with the US’s southern neighbors.
John Stahl, chairman of the Tea Party Immigration Coalition is fuming over the Labor Department’s actions. Concerning the rights of illegal aliens, Stahl stated, ‘Illegal aliens may not work in the United States — period. That’s what the law says. The only right they have is to be deported.’
He also questions the legality of the agreement between the Labor Department and the Central American nations, saying, ‘We’d like to know under what authority the secretary of Labor signed an international agreement. Last I checked, the Senate of the United States must ratify treaties.”
While so many Americans are out of work, Obama and the Labor Department have already launched a program to allow hundreds of thousands of illegal immigrants to work in the US. Also note that this program was launched months before his expected jobs speech tonight.
This is just one of many things the Obama administration has done to demonstrate that they favor illegals more than they do our own citizens. I don’t know about you, but I consider the overt efforts of Obama and Solis to ignore federal laws and then hold workshops to show illegals how to subvert the system so they can take jobs from American citizens as being another act of treason against the constitution and the American people committed by the President.
